I think it's highly unlikely we acquire Miller due to his salary and our cap, and the fact that we would have nearly 10M tied up in goaltending, but considering he's a UFA at seasons end he may waive his NTC to come to a Canadian team if he feels the playing situation might be more palatable than in Buffalo where things have soured.

If no American team is kicking his tires, 3/4 of a season in Canada may seem preferable to him. His family wouldn't have to move here and he'd be in the States most of the season anyhow.
Doug Maclean stated it as fact a few days ago on Hockey Central as Noon. something along the lines of "Miller has said he won't play in Canada". Not sure where he got it from.

LeBrun did report that Edmonton was on Millers no trade list.
